I promise this won’t be the beginning of “how to wear white in summer” posts! After all, that would be pretty easy and straightforward no? In all my years of wearing clothes and keeping up with fashion trends “white for summer” has been a no-brainer.

The subject here is not necessarily color but texture and shape. I love this little dress from Anthropologie because of the contrast between the full retro skirt and the fitted bustier bodice. It has kind of a “Like a Virgin” Madonna-esque feel but more demure and romantic.

How beautiful is that patchwork material!
